McDavis, Roderick T.; Parker, Woodrow M.
This learning module, one in a series of competency-based guidance program training packages focusing upon professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel, deals with helping ethnic minorities with career guidance. Addressed in the module are the following topics: determining one's own attitudes toward ethnic minorities and reasons for those reactions, explaining some of the career-related consequences of stereotyping ethnic minorities, improving interactions with ethnic minorities, planning for more culturally relevant career guidance materials for ethnic minorities, and communicating more effectively with ethnic minorities. The module consists of readings and learning experiences covering these five topics. Each learning experience contains some or all of the following: an overview, a competency statement, a learning objective, one or more individual learning activities, an individual feedback exercise, one or more group activities, and a facilitator's outline for use in directing the group activities. Concluding the module are a handout, a participant self-assessment questionnaire, a trainer's assessment questionnaire, a checklist of performance indicators, a list of references, and an annotated list of suggested additional resources.
